A Short Story of iikonz’ Journey

iikonz’ journey began with Priya Balasubramanian, a mother of two children, who developed a passion towards storytelling. Priya went on to train as a career analyst, life coach, trainer and a counselor. She started a forum called Kadhaikalam Vaangaa storyteller’s platform through which Priya trained, coached and counseled over 100 people, kids and adults alike. iikonz is an offspring of Kadhaikalam Vaanga, designed to impart training through extensive use of storytelling and theatre-based activities.
